      Default Those crazy little icons, do they slow you down? Do you want to see them?

      I can move the spinning little icons to the "more info" section of sets, so you won't see them or be able to see designs in the set until you click more info.

      Is this what you would like to see or should I leave them as is?

      Since the spinning little icons do change to the designs, I would like to see it stay as is.

      Okay, can you try it now and see what you think, I though I'd try to get tricky again.

      clicking on "more info" works, just another click. also tried it on my phone and works there too.

      Page loads much faster in the click for more mode. Then if you need to look closer at each design in the set its just one click. Searching category like alphabets where there are so many designs in the set works much better and faster I think.

      I found the spinning icons to be distracting--being old with astigmatism doesn't help.

      I like it the way it is now but I do believe it will take new people time to realize that the more info is here, maybe I should make it a button.

      Gonna have a beer and take a break, or take the rest of my Saturday off, Minus 20 degrees Celsius with a minus 30 degree wind chill. No outdoor stuff today!

      I agree with Shatasmom! I liked it when the spinning icons turned into the thumbnails. Now you need to go to more info every time when you aren't sure of a set. Very irritating! I must say though, the sight is looking superb!

      I like the extra info. At first it was distracting but I got used to it and find the hunt faster at times.

      I find that having the icons does slow down the loading of the page slightly, but several times I would have passed over a design set during the hunt, thinking that the design I was looking for surely was not in that set only to see that it was. There are pros and cons both ways, and I can live with whatever you or others chose.

      We had a couple of freezes the past few nights, but today is not bad at 62 degrees F. I hope you stay warm and you can feel sorry for us come summer with 90 some percent humidity and high temps.

      I would like to be able to see the small icons. It makes the sets more interesting and certainly improves the likelihood of finding the hunt especially for less common or older designs.

      I like the new, cleaner presentation. With the extra icons, the sets have different heights/lengths and the display seems very untidy and random. The information is readily available with the "click for more info" and also allows the page to load faster. I like that.

      Looks like I'll leave it as it is now then. I think the faster page loading and less clutter is better.

      Can we have a 'click for less' button on the expanded display?

      I like those crazy little icons, but recently I have noticed that they are entirely missing from the set "Swirly Horses". I hope this is the best place to post this.

      While I'm at it and since I have no clue where to post this one, I've noticed that since you've put more sets per page in the "Newest Designs" pages, that the "Back to Page #" at the bottom of the "Vote for Designs" pages of sets takes you to the wrong page. For example for the "Swirly Horses" it takes you to page 87, but the horses are actually on page 65.

      Thanks for all you do to make this such a nice website.
